So there’s a variety of spare tires, right? There are some that come as Lincoln Zephyr wheels & some that come for Mazda Navajo rims . If you didn’t know, now you do. Compact Spares are typically shorter & slimmer than the tires that you have on your car. Since they’re so small, they need to have a higher inflation pressure than your regular tires; which is ordinarily 60 PSI.
Considering compact spares are so small, they allow for you to put them at the bottom of your car / truck & just pull them out whenever your tire fails on you. How convenient, right? The compact spare that came with your vehicle is manufactured specifically for your car; so if you have a friend that has a tire blown out on the freeway, you can either tell him to install is own Compact Spare or just call Triple A. It’s pretty straightforward & mean; but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do. The only time you can use a Compact Spare on a vehicle is when it’s the exact same year, make, & model; but that’s obvious (:
